I went out last night to see a friend and his band, Bound by Nothing, play at The Trocadero in Philadelphia, PA. I hadn’t been out to a rock concert in a LONG time. Back in high school, a group of local kids had bands and would play at an American Legion hall at least once a month. I remember going and LOVING having my hearing destroyed every time. Not sure what it was about it.. but I know it kept a lot of us from getting into trouble and allowed the kids in the bands a fun creative outlet and a little bit of local fame. These bands were all heavy metal or goth or something along those lines – back in high school I had dyed my hair green and wore an old green army jacket and black combat boots with ripped jeans, so they all really fit in with what I was into at the time.
So, last night. Ahhh I need to go out and do that more often! Tickets were $15 and totally reasonable.. some of the bands were great, some not so great, but honestly, it didn’t matter.. it was just about being there. Oh, and going to support my friend and his band. They rocked the house and had everyone cheering at the end of their set – it was the first time I had seen them and I was pretty blown away. It was also great to see a bunch of friends that I don’t get to see very often and kick back at the bar upstairs with them. One quick photo from the night..
